Investigators with the HRP/RCMP Integrated Vice Unit are seeking the public’s help in locating a missing U.S. citizen.
Seventy-year-old Sarah Tessier Powell was last seen on September 30, 2012 on-board the Holland America cruise ship Veendam. The ship’s next scheduled stops were Charlottetown, PEI, October 2; Sydney,
NS, October 3 and finally Halifax, NS, October 4. There is no evidence to suggest that Sarah has met with foul play; however, it is believed she may have walked off the ship without being checked by security. It is not clear where she may have disembarked.
Sarah is a white woman, 5’6” with a thin build and brown shoulder length hair. She speaks with a strong southern accent.
There is concern for Sarah’s well-being because she requires medication and may become agitated without it.
